Happy Holidays!

L’Officiel de la Mode, December 1955, n. 405 – 406, Pierre Balmain embroidered velvet evening gown.

Here’s wishing a very merry holiday season to all Vault readers- we’ll be back in 2013 to bring you the best of global vintage exhibitions, flea markets, vintage shows and more!  In an homage to the vintage holiday frock, behold this Balmain gem [above] from a 50s-era L’Officiel spread.  Here’s hoping your festive attire is equally aspirational and that the new year brings many sartorially successful moments!
